With iPadOS 16, Apple is introducing a new Straighten feature to improve the note-taking and writing experience using the Apple Pencil. This feature will help users neaten up their handwritten texts by providing a better alignment.
iPadOS 16 Brings Straighten Feature For Handwritten Text Notes
If you often take notes in the Notes app, you can now use the Straighten option to make your text look more legible. In order to use the feature, simply select all of your handwritten text and choose the Straighten option to make the text look a bit neater. While the feature has nothing to offer when it comes to improving your handwriting, it will simply change the arrangement of the writing on the page to better align it and make it look more note-like.
As seen in the demonstration, the difference is subtle, but it adds to the presentation of handwritten text by inserting equal spacing between lines and enhancing the clarity. The Straighten option will be more helpful to people who have somewhat neat handwriting but need help with arranging the text better.
